Default Why I chose a NOS njkon F 60

1) cheaper than a digital body (entry level)
2)nobody in his right mind would steal my film body
3)I can shoot legendary films like velvia,tmax,3200,delta and so on
4)film bodies are timeless-I will keep mine until it breaks down
and not until the new fangled super duper sensor
comes
5)shooting film these days is a novelty
6)after 1 year and a dozen films still on its OEM batteries
7)more rugged than an entrylevel digital (metal chassis)
8)a real camera and not a computer with a lens
9)no dirty sensor problems
10)reasonable to make a darkroom again

Lemme know if you find a really good black&white printing paper like
Kodak Elite Fine-art S2 and S3. I prefer D-72 1+1, but I am willing to
use an Amidol developer if necessary.

I am pretty sure l wont since here they import only ilford
multigrade rc papers and only in athens.And a couple of paper
developers.namely multigrade ilford and one kodak.I am now to the
point of saving up for a new enlarger and lens and the necessary
parafernalia.which darkroom equipment I so foolishly gave away
when I went digital. My 2 little nieces won t have another chance
to see a real darkroom.

11)by definition film is always full frame without having to pay
an arm and a leg
12)you can shoot (even today) dozens of different films and not
the same old sensor
13)you can scan (of have scanned) your film and so have the best
of both worlds
14)your negatives are immune to data theft data loss data
hijacking data corruption and so on
15)your negatives will remain readable fot ever while with digital
files who knows what will happen (a friend ofmine had his thesis
in 2 5 1/4 floppies so it s practically lost for
ever)
